Our Global Power Law & Policy blog explores legal and policy developments affecting the global power industry.

As a core building block of the global economic engine, the dynamic energy industry has shifted in response to the evolution of technology coupled with regulatory, environmental, economic, political, and social influences.

Increasing attention and resources are being devoted to alternative and renewable energy sources, cleaner fossil-fueled energy, efficiency technologies, and changes in the power portfolio distributed by utilities. At the same time, evolving technologies involving key energy resources, including unconventional natural gas development, solar, wind, hydroelectric, and nuclear power, are changing the shape of energy production, supply, and use across all regions. K&L Gates’ interdisciplinary energy and utilities practice leverages experience from many practices to help address these industries’ unique challenges. Lawyers throughout our offices work together to guide clients through strategic decisions, policy initiatives, commercial transactions, project financing and development, regulatory compliance, tax matters, credit trading, and litigation. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and teamwork, as well as on maintaining a thorough grounding in both the legal and business dimensions of the energy and utilities industries.

Our clients include independent power producers; alternative energy project developers and producers; investor-owned and publicly owned electric, gas, water, and telecommunications utilities; emerging businesses in the smart energy sector; power marketers; oil and gas producers; coal bed methane producers; natural gas and petroleum product storage and transmission companies; members of the nuclear power industry; industrial and commercial energy customers; municipalities; lenders; developers; and contractors.

Our clean technology practice encompasses such diverse renewable energy resources as solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, wave, tidal, coal gasification, and various "green" technologies employed in the industry to facilitate the production of clean energy, as well as fuel cell and other energy-storage technologies, distributed power systems, transmission and distribution system management and efficiency enhancements, and energy management software, sensors, and other systems. We have helped develop, finance, site, permit, and evaluate renewable energy projects for clients across the nation and internationally. We help emerging energy and technology companies form and organize; secure tax equity investment, grants, venture capital and other sources of financing; establish strategic alliances; engage in mergers and acquisitions transactions; commercialize their products through technology licensing; and protect their intellectual property.
